iComic lets you download the *entire archive* of a comic into your database for later browsing. I don't think Comictastic does that.

I don't know of anything else that does that actually.

Actually, Comictastic can do that.

Choosing between the two is mostly a matter of preference, really. And sometimes the availability of a specific plug-in.

I like iComic as I am now able to get my favorit e comic strips that my hometown newspaper no longer prints.

And if you don't like the metal look, I suggest the haxie from Unsanity which will remove the brushed metal look.

Hey, who can beat the price of freeware?

I don't want to sound harsh on this review, but Comicastic is way better. There's no doubt. It has way more features, a good interface (I don't see why everyone likes iComic's "brushed" look) and you can view any comic you want without any plug-ins at all.

Great idea and love the interface. Only gripe (and this is not at the developer) is I wish more cartoons were available.

I dislike the metal interface and the strange window resizing -- and I really dislike the lack of actual comics. Also, it locks up all the time and the icon stinks.

Comictastic is a much better deal, even at a whopping $15, because it looks so pretty and offers instant support for any comic you want.

Unlike iComic.

Very well-made program. Quick to respond, pretty, easy to use. I have a few gripes (ugly toolbar icons, no way to remove the included comic subscription, tabbed interface a little odd), but overall very good.
